Style Notes

Modern craftsman. This south-facing sunny house is filled with windows, light and period detailing. Original crown moldings adds a historic flourish while woodwork is all white for a unified crisp look. The craftsman architecture is juxtaposed with Mid Century modern and Scandinavian furniture for a modern craftsman look. Warm morning sun hits the swing on the south side of the room and underfloor heating with marble hex tiles keeps feet warm. We love the cozy and thoughtful touches for families.

Lakes, museums and dinosaur jaws

The Twin Cities are full of interactive and interesting thing to do with the kids. From the Minnesota Children’s Museum to the Zoo, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, rainy and cold days are easy to navigate. Head to the Chain of Lakes for a morning at the beach or sailing lessons, and don’t miss the Science Museum where you can come face to face with a T Rex.
